Higher Education PS Urges University to Fast-track Implementation of CBET Curriculum
Higher Education PS Urges University to Fast-track Implementation of CBET Curriculum. Universities of science and technology have been asked by Higher Education Principal Secretary (PS) Dr. Beatrice Inyangala to facilitate the implementation of the Competency-Based Education and Training (CBET) Curriculum.
She also urged the institutions to continue to be relevant by experimenting with and coming up with new ways to address new technology problems that are hurting middle-level industrial start-ups.
The PS said the action will provide a platform for the creation of an educational programme that imparts students with necessary skills and competencies that will make them active, creative, cooperative, and capable of fusing theoretical and practical knowledge. The PS was speaking at the second annual International Conference on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which was held at Meru University on June 28.
According to her, “the level of preparedness of institutions of higher learning in mainstreaming the CBET curriculum is to a great extent unexplored, and therefore in the realm of the social sciences this is another rich opportunity for research.”
According to Dr. Inyangala, the Ministry of Education is devoting more funds to research because the nation needs to set its own priorities for research and because it values collaborations with other countries since they are crucial for exposing the nation to fresh ideas.
“As a Ministry, I can promise you that we are committed to continuing to support research institutes, lift up our communities, and assist those working to progress the economy in both the national and international areas. Let’s take use of this chance to establish new alliances, come up with novel ideas, and create workable solutions for a future that is more promising, inclusive, and sustainable.
Professor Romanus Odhiambo, vice chancellor (VC) of Meru University, stated that it was important to embrace the research agenda as a duty and to provide students with the greatest supervision possible in order for them to become the future’s most illustrious scholars.
The conference, which was held from yesterday through today, has as its theme “Leveraging inter-linkages among SDGs to realise the 2030 agenda through research and innovation in the post-COVID era.”
